here to announce the closure of guantanamo. four years ago when president obama can into office and issued the executive order that we all remember promising to close guantanamo, that was absolutely the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high
was not a balanced approach. >> it's about time they gave a little bit of something because they haven't given obama anything for four years. >> he got it. >> the reality of it is the republicans will have to come down and be serious and not just protect wealthy people and come up with some proposals and the president has got to come up with proposals, i haven't seen it on any side. martha: i agree with you and i asked steve king about that moments ago. you've got to come up with ideas, lay it out so the people can decide which side they like, what they agree with. theyer getting no meat in either of these. >> to get beat up i on the tphaort of the house by republicans in a motion vicious way. >> come on. >> you just did it. what are you talking about? you guys can never say anything nice about this guy, i don't know why. he's president of the united states, say one thing nice. martha: i'm getting very lonely at the white house and i think you guys should come over and play to card. thank you box, thank you mary catherine. bill: tanteros got a radio show, shys unavailable. reroll in mary katherine h
of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama, almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was rewarded. calling the obama health care plan which was there room only a few years earlier socialism was not rewarded. that means, they have to begin to rethink themselves. importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in the opposition. i think that was an important change that creates a
's the total cost of regulations the obama administration created last year alone, according to the american action forum. finally, 73%. new study says that's how much women can lower their risk of heart attack if they just eat onions five times a week. make sure you carry mints with you, ladies. steve? >> steve: what about garlic? mean while, time means everything, right? there are some right times to go shopping for things that you want, so what should you buy right now in january and what should you not buy in january? let's talk to personal finance expert, vera givens. good morning. >> good morning. >> steve: just like we have an agenda, we need stuff. the retailers and service organizations, they've got times when they sell things at special prices and not so special prices. >> the special prices now starting with the exercise equipment. treadmills, ellipticals, apparel. >> steve: is a good time to buy fitness equipment? >> very good time. discounts of 30, 40, maybe 50% off in some instances. so if you lost a few pounds, looking to extend momentum, now would be a very good time to inves
four years, the term of the administration of president obama? >> see, this is the real reason why i called on jose miguel because he just articulated a question that i couldn't quite articulate but was precisely -- >> let me answer as bluntly and quickly as possible, and i'll invite my panelists to join in. first of all, the oas is a victim, and jose -- [inaudible] sosa is the beneficiary of the oas' growing irrelevance. the oas has declined in stature and importance, and jose miguel has been less open to observation and criticism because it's becoming less and less relevant. i think it's difficult. i honestly don't know how you turn that corner to make the oas much more -- i do think giving much more -- to take the case of the american human rights commission which is something that we're working on as america's quarterly, i think that could be a test case for demonstrating, you know, the only thing that really works in the oas and could sort of, hope any, reinject -- and also an opportunity for the obama administration to quietly, behind the scenes, make common cause with countrie
, bank of america, citi group, and morgan stanley. the group ran up over 26% in the last year, and the estimates have come down considerably from sector to sector so this group, obviously, estimates trimmed to a certain extent. back to you. >> thank you, nicole. president obama addressed the nation on the looming debt ceiling warning a debt crisis could occur if congress does not raise the debt limit. rich edson is in washington, d.c. with the details. rich? >> both sides dug in, and president obama refuses to negotiate, congress should clear the way and put the responsibility squarely on congress. >> this is a matter of congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me, and because they have the spending power, and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. >> the president did sign all of that in appropriations into law. the white house
. >> didn't we do this for the last two years? the election is over. the whole barack obama is part of this elitists is a dead argument. it doesn't move things forward. what the nra should be talking about is let's make sure people have to be licensed properly to have their guns. make sure people know how to use a gun if someone comes into their home. these ads and attacks raises money, gets people talking, and it doesn't help the nra's reputation with the public. >> ron, jason has a point. this could create a backlash. a "washington post" poll shows 44% have an unfavorable view of the nra's leadership. >> i don't think that matters to the nra. what their goal is is to protect gun rights, the rights of the second amendment. they're going to do everything possible to make sure that happens. you know, you have republicans and democrats joining together. that will end up joining together to fight president obama's proposals. you have red state senators in the senate, harry reid extremely cool to this proposal as well as pat leahy, a democrat who will take his time and look this over. i
the country that has given him so much. this has been his goal since he was a kid. when president obama stopped the deportation of eligible youth last year, he opened the door of opportunity for young people and he pointed the way forward by establishing important principles to guide immigration reform. immigrants must take personal responsibility for their actions. if they do this, we must provide a meaningful path forward to become members of american society. we have every right to protect our borders but we must balance this with the need to encourage the aspiration of america's immigrants. these are the principles of the american people threw their support behind in november. these are the principles that guide immigration reform in the coming months. with these principles in mind, we need reform builds upon the following policy pillars. a pathway to legal permanent residents in three and citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants must be at the core of reform. number two is legalization should be earned. it should be a process and not a punishment proof of english-lang
of the loss of political capital and the years of the bush administration some people in the administration tried to politicize the human rights questions and i think that the mantra became wendi obama administration came in we cannot publicize them or get in the middle of it but i think they had gone too far and it's not just in venezuela. it's across the board, and i don't think that, you know, they really found that middle ground yet. there is a crying need for people in the region's. let's take the case of venezuela who are not getting represented somewhere. estimate on that happy and optimistic note, i know there are many additional questions and we simply don't have time to get to you so i apologize for that, but i think the conversation here has been fantastic. it's been broad, diverse, which covered a lot of territory. i know we didn't answer all questions to the fact of the matter is that good because the phrase you always want to leave them wanting more so presumably we've done that. ladies and gentlemen will you join me in my thinking our panelists.

violence, president obama announced the most sweeping push for gun control in decades. >> this is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe. >> reporter: 11-year-old julia stokes wrote to the president. the only person she thought could make a difference. >> she said, i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard. julia, i will try very hard. >> reporter: he's going to have to. the president is up against a congress that's very reluctant to pass comprehensive gun control. to get the ball rolling, mr. obama signed 23 executive actions that don't need approval by lawmakers. they include -- strengthening the national criminal background check system and more federal research on gun violence. but the president said these are just first steps. >> congress, too, must act. and congress must act soon. >> reporter: and here's what he's pushing lawmakers to do. universal background checks on gun purchases. a ban of high-capacity magazine clips. and a renewed ban on those so-called assault weapons. gun rights advocates are gearing up for a bitter fight and
president in history. of course, he did almost nothing in the way of gun-control in his first four years. in back, the brady campaign gave him an f assessment of his record. so what did the nra do into dozens of? the capacity you know, we were wrong about obama. he is not really our guide. he is pro not the one to do very much to infringe on gun rights. well, they went back and said exactly the date -- the same things in 2012 that they said in 2008. i am afraid the nra is mostly interested in whipping up hysteria to raise money for itself and to perpetuate itself rather than to do anything particularly productive. >> soap responsible members of the nra, wonder if they will raise their hand and say wait a minute. >> i wouldn't hold my breath on that. >> how much do you think the nra is promoting the interest of gun manufacturers and gun sellers? >> i don't know where they get their funding. obviously they get some from the gun industry. you can make a sort of case that the sort of tactics they used are helpful to get sales. you have a big surge in debt sales after obama was reelected. the
